Emergency Medical Technician we have SOAP, A CHART and someone CHEATED!

I hope as an EMT and Paramedic, you have soap. soap is an important thing. It must be used constantly....oh wait...were not talking about hygiene here. There are actually three ways to record call information while working. As you can tell from the title one is SOAP, CHART, and CHEATED. So what does each one include?

P (Plan) Emergency Care provided to the patient

CHART
C (Chief Complaint) 
H (History of Patient) Medical history of patient
A (Assessment)
R (Rx) Treatment given to the patient

CHEATED

E(Exam) Physical Exam of patient
A (Assessment)
